Beat Arsenal away

Drew with Stoke home

 

Hammered Sunderland home.

Who was the 3rd game?

It’s funny as I don’t remember the Sunderland game but I presume I was there. I remember the Stoke match vividly mainly because of Cheesley’s injury. Just checked - 0-0 at Newcastle.

The only Sunderland home game i can remember was a 4/3 win first game of the season in about 71?

with Ken Whimshurst scoring the winning goal with a supurb chip into the top corner in front of the East End.

Opener of the season 70-71, also the shiny new Dolman's first game

I can't read any of that,i'm old  and pissed.

Anything after the Stoke home game on a Tuesday night is a blur. Who scored our goal in that 1/1 draw?

Gillies again.

At the bottom you can see the Southern league premier, ( now the national league) fourth from top Minehead Town, who are now in division 1 of the Somerset county league, now playing the likes of Nailsea and Tickenham Reserves!. Burton, Yeovil and Wimbledon are further down the table below Minehead. 

I watched a game at Minehead last Friday, it’s incredible to think how their’s and Wimbledon’s history’s  have panned out since 76, polar opposites.

When Sunderland’s kit was a strange grey/light blue.

I guess the Gasheads were taking the fact that they lost to a George Best goal as a badge of honour, and no doubt claiming that they outnumbered the home support in a crowd of 31000.

I seem to recall we kicked off both halves in the Sunderland home game....no one really noticed...obviously the ref and linesman didnt (they were called Linesman then)

That was the least controversial incident involving Sunderland that season. :)

Those early points turned out to be vital at seasons end.

As I remember it Gillies came on as sub for Cheesley in the now infamous Stoke game and then scored a late equaliser when he intercepted a back pass.

Poetic justice in a small way.

Gilles only scored about 30 in his entire City career but there were there some massive ones, the equaliser at Coventry on the last day being the biggest, though the Leeds FA cup winner was also huge.

That's a really good point about Gillies goals.  I hadn't really linked the fact that he had  scored both goals in what were probably still the most memorable, to me, away matches since I have followed city.

"I thought they'd never end", and we believed that back then. 

Oh for the innocence of youth.

I could probably search on the Internet, but what did Sunderland do back in 1971?

I don't know, the season in the OP's post is 1976
